The acting Minister of Rural and Local Government says there are further judgements to come in the Courts for contractors for payments the state has yet to honour.

Minister Robinson Regis responding to questions about the levying on the Community-Based Environmental Protection and Enhancement Programme (CEPEP) by contractor Tora Bora Construction for monies owed said in 2015 they were met with an astounding bill.

She said CEPEP attempted to verify the contracts but were unable to do so as there were documents missing.

On Friday, Court Marshals moved in at CEPEP's Headquarters in Ste Madeleine and seized items in order for Tora Bora Construction and Contractors Ltd to recover more than $1.9 million owed.

CEPEP, which falls under the Ministry of Rural Development and Local Government was ordered by the Court last December to pay the contractor for work the company did at the St Joseph Health Centre in 2015.

When CEPEP failed to pay, the contractor obtained a writ of levy from the court.

Minister Robinson Regis told the parliament that CEPEP just didn't have the money to pay.
